There is still a great fear running through my consciousness for our future because Obama has won a second term. And like many of my fellow conservatives I spent much of yesterday "out on the ledge getting ready to jump." That was until I realized that while the progressives will try their best to change this great nation into a European socialist republic nothing much has or will be different for a long time. Let me explain, these are the things my that will never change because Obama has won a second term:
- My family still loves me.
- My daughter still wants me to give her money.
- My Son will still go to action movies with me.
- My dog still walks over to my chair's arm rest and sticks her nose under my hand as a signal she wants some attention.
- LIPA still hasn't given me back the power I lost last Monday because of Hurricane Sandy.
- Bill O' Reilly will still whine that Romney didn't come on HIS show and that's why he lost.
- John Boehner will still capitulate first and ask questions later.
- My family will still be driving down to Baltimore to spend Thanksgiving with my brother and his family.
- Chris Matthews will still tinkle down his leg and still call any disagreement with Obama-racism.
- My Long Island Rail Road Train is Still Late and still doesn't have enough seats.
- Ben's Still delivers a delicious brisket sandwich to my office for lunch.
- I will still be welcomed into my Shul (or any Shul) when I show up on Shabbos
- Mark Levin will still teach me American History and the Constitution for three hours every weekday.
- I still have great friendships with some great reporters and bloggers.
- I am still afraid of heights, so this "out on the ledge" thing is scary--I better go inside.
- I still think that the United States of America is the best hope for freedom in the world.
- Despite Tuesday night's lousy news, I will still be fighting against the progressive agenda and their allies in the government and in the mainstream media, because I still love my God, my Country, my friends, and most of all, my family. To be honest there is no other choice.
In the end I am still very confident that freedom, the constitution and the unique American experiment which began on July 4th 1776 will win out in the end.
